Daniel Chester French
(American, 1850 - 1931)

A major name in the late 19th and early 20th Century in American sculpture. He remained very much in the classical tradition producing romanticised sculptures of the American Beaux-arts style that was popular in design at the turn of the century. He was however able to create evocative and powerful works that went beyond the standard formula of the American neo-Renaissance. This is most celebrated in his statue of Abraham Lincoln in Washington and of General Ulysses S Grant in Philadelphia.
